. not because there hasn't been tax rises think i suspect dean every family in this country. not because they didn't want to cut borrowing. they did. abacus or services are getting worse. they are. but because if you stop an economy growing, it will be of more out of work claiming benefits, not paying taxes. businesses struggles that they are not paying taxes. and as a result, borrowing goes out. our income not to invest in schools and transport and education, but are we to keep people idle so the next time you hear a conservative say to you, labor would increase borrowing. just remember it is this government that is increasing borrowing this year. [applause] so what have we seen? we have seen recessions, higher unemployment, higher borrowing. i don't think that is what people were promised. there will be some people who say, and this is an important argument. it will be some people who say they were short-term pain, but it is worth it for the long term gain. and i'm afraid the opposite is true. the longer you have low growth in the country, the baker to debt comes to the future and the
're going. governor romney has a perspective that says if we cut taxes, skewed towards the wealthy ad roll back regulation, we'll be better off. i have a different view. i think we have to invest in education and training. i think it's important for us to develop new sources of energy here in america. that we change our tax code to make sure that we're helping small businesses and companies that are investing in the united states. that we take some of the money that we're saving as we wind down two wars, to rebuild america. and that we reduce our deficit in a balanced way that allows us to make critical investments. now, ultimately it will be up to the voters, to you, which path we should take. are we going to double down on the top down economic policies that helped get us into this mess? or do we embrace a new economic patriotism, that says america does best when the middle class does best? i'm looking forward to having that debate. >> governor romney, two minutes. >> thank you, jim. an honor to be with you and pleased to be with the president. i'm pleased to be at the university of denv
the topic of tax reform. most people thought the world was flat and anyone sent on a journey would likely go off a cliff. columbus bar defined a new route. today we are going to be exploring new routes to tax reform and how to avoid the fiscal cliff. the senator will talk for approximately 20 or 25 minutes. and we will open up the conference to questions. >> there is perhaps no issue facing congress that is more complex man tax reform. for all the disagreements on taxes, most policy-makers and what the broad outline of tax reform might look like when you ask them is you get a startling difference in dramatically lowering the rate of broadening the tax debate. -- bess. -- base. ronald reagan and the 1986 congress created this. in the upcoming talks on the fiscal cliff, we should scrap this. the old style of tax reform is obsolete in a 2012 world. it does not fit the times because there are two new conditions that did not exist in 1986 but are staring us in the face today. first, a much larger and much more dangerous deficit and second, a dramatic increase been income and inequality. old-style
romney has a perspective that says if we cut taxes, skewed towards the wealthy and roll back regulations, that we'll be better off. i have a different view. i think we have got to invest in education and training. i think it's important for us to develop new sources of energy here in america. that we change our tax code to make sure we're helping small businesses and companies here in the united states, that we take some of the money we're saving as we wind down two wars to rebuild america. now it ultimately is going to be up to the voters to you, which path we should take. are we going to double down on the top-down economic policies that helped get us into this mess, or embrace a new economic patriotism, that says america does best when the middle class does best. >> governor romney two minutes. >> romney: thing you jim. i'm i'm -- pleased to be here with the president and to be here. and congratulations to you, mr. president, i'm sure this is the most romantic place you could imagine here with me. [ laughter ] >> romney: i have had the occasion of meet
a perspective that says if we cut taxes skew toward the wealthy and roll back regulations we will be better off. i have a different view. we have to invest in education and training. it is important to develop new sources of and in america, change our tax code to help small businesses and companies investing in the united states. that we take some of the money that we are seeing -- saving to robo-call america -- rebuild america. it will be up to the voters was path we should take. will we double down on the top- down economic policies that helped get us into this mess or embrace a new economic patriotism that says america does best when the middle class does best. i will forward to having that debate. >> it is in honor to be here with you. i appreciate the chance to be with the president. congratulations to you mr. president on your anniversary. i am sure this is the most romantic place you could imagines here with me. congratulations. this is a tender topic. i have met people across the country. i was in dayton, ohio and a woman said i have been out of work since may. can you help me? yesterda
more, taxing more, regulating more, if you will, trickle down government would work. >> president obama sounded a familiar alarm. warning of romney's been there done that economics. >> the approach that governor romney is talking about is the same sales pitch that was made in 2001 and 2003. we ended up with the slowest job growth in 50 years. >> whether it was health care, jobs, or medicare, it was romney who stood out for his aggressive ste. >> i just don't know how the president could have come into office facing 23 million people out of work, rising unemployment, an economic crisis at the kitchen table, and spend his energy and passion for two years fighting for obama care. >> the president made his points in a slower, more laid back, often looking down, sometimes appearing disengaged. it's not that he didn't try to rip apart romney's economic plan. >> that kind of top-down economics where folks at the top are doing well, so the average person making $3 million is getting a $250,000 tax break while middle class families are burdened further. >> romney was determined to go toe to toe.
knows taxes are due on april 15. we set up tax centers on the base three months prior and we take active duty military personnel off their regular duties and they go in and assist people with their taxes. you have people assisting with federal and state taxes. we provide nothing of the sort for voting registration. the move act was supposed to get offices set up on the basis. everybody could have gone in to check in with that voting assistance officer. that has never been in place while we were on active duty. we don't want a stack of voter registration ballots sitting on a counter somewhere. we want them to physically go in and say whether they want to register or not. this is the only way we can track it and find out if it is sure apathy which i find hard to believe. or is it just not having access? host: there is a project called a military voter protection project and they compared 2008 ballot requests and 2012 ballot requests and looking at key states, they thought there was a great difference as far bell requests. do you believe there is a significant difference? guest: this is hor
taxes on people at the high end of the income scale apreposterous. i think you would agree. obviously if the republicans get into power they are going to cut taxes at the high income and he got on stage tonight and said no. >> romney's problem is that this debate is in 2012, not 1812. we have things we can hit a button to show what he has said before. no doubt mitt romney was at his best tonight but his best is not good enough. when you look at the fact that he's saying that taxes will not go up on the middle class, yet he is proposing all the way through this campaign, dealing with deductions in terms of mortgage investments, dealing with deductions in terms of charity, it will in fact go up on the middle class and a much lower tax rate for the rich. the fact will not bear him out. when he stood there all night advocating states' rights across the board, what is that saying to women about who is going to decide on women's issues? what is that saying to minorities t immigration? this man went back to the 19th century on states' rights all night long. when we hear him talk about things
running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy, the fellow on stage last night said he didn't know anything about that. >> last night i thought was a great opportunity for the american people to see two very din visions for the country. and i think it was helpful to be able to describe those visions. i saw the president's vision as trickle down government and i don't think that's what america believes in. >> overnight polls and "the denver post" give round one to romney. as a republican challenger went after the president's record. >> i just don't know how the president could have come into office, facing 23 million people out of work, rising unemployment, and economic crisis at the kitchen table, and spent his energy and passion for two years fighting for obama care instead of fighting for jobs for the american people. >> the president faulted romney for being too vague. >> at some point, i think the american people have to ask themselves, is the reason that governor romney is keeping all of these plans to replace secret because
could be accurate or not. what is the person saying there should not be a millionaire tax or should be. who is the special interest dominating that message point coming out and how does the voter get through it? i think one the most amazing thicks happening in the country when you look at the president number heys doing well. what's fascinated about the amount of money being spent by the cross roads and the entity for some reason the message is not coming through it's not compel fpg you look at the swing states that we were going to be remarkably close are going to trend toward tbhawm a way that somebody thinks to seem unless the debate set the presidential election. it's clear the spt heading toward a environment he has a advantage. romney is going to be exceptional. >> tune in. >> fiewn in and watch. let watch. >> i'm excited. >> talk about in next week in class. >> would you taunt the cross road different and you engage in more localized races congressional and senate how you choose your priorities since so you have a broader scope. >> yeah. that's a good question. we're focused on
not raising taxes and essentially reducing the regulatory burden, but as you know, and the president said it, but it's true, the president's plan as well, there are not a lot of specifics here so it is a little hard to kind of pin down exactly what each of these candidates is going to do. but i think the general view is less government basically. let the free market do its thing. that was the message from last night. let the american people make their own choices, do their own thing. and that's sort of in a broad sense what romney is talking about. dagen: it was great to see you. >> thank you. dagen: coming up next hour john challenger on his new layoffs report and what the candidates need to say about the mess. connell: here we go. 18 electoral votes and no state was mentioned more in the debate last night than ohio. dagen: liz claman live from cleveland for day one of open for business. liz? liz: well, from politics to business, cleveland and ohio, look at this, we are at the rock and roll hall of fame where 100 million dollars of tourism money comes through these doors every single year,
these things a lot tonight in my comments. i was the governor who drew top tax fraud. i had to cut $5 billion from the state budget, including my own salary. i'm the only governor in modern times who left the office with a smaller general fund budget and when i started. i know how to be fiscally responsible. my opponent when into the united states senate in 2001 with the biggest surplus in the united states and six years later left with massive deficits. during his time in the senate, the national debt went up by $16,000. he conceded that spending was a problem in the senate. we also have people who need to know how to work together. i learned to cut crime bills and the economy. my opponent said his job was to not democrats softly. he took this similar position in the senate, fighting efforts led by the then-senior virginia senator. when someone who will fight and that is what i will do is your next to none state senator. >> if mr. allen, your opening statement. >> thank you. it's much better future than what we are having to endure these days. that is why i put forward a detailed plan. my bl
to the people of virginia who are really facing tough times, he might not have proposed raising taxes on working people, working women, seniors and small business owners, as well as people earning as little as 17b$,000 a year, and he might have been against the sequestration deal that is threatening over 200,000 jobs in virginia right now. but he made different choices and soon you will get to choose. if i have the honor of being your senator, i'm going to give all my energies working with people in both parties to create jobs and get america ascending once again. >> mr. kaine, let's follow-up immediately on these opening statements here. your campaign has basically said you're going to go to washington, work across party lines, and fix that toxic political environment. but at the same time, you spent years as democratic party chair being in some ways the partisan-in-chief for the party. what do you say to virginians to convince them when you go to washington, you will be the problem solver who's nonpartisan? >> when i was governor, i served with two presidents. i served with president bush for
out enough in debt, and enough taxes we have made changes that grows this economy, and that is why i am running for the united states senate. to change the want leadership in washington. we can change that. that is why i am running for the senate. i want to pass a balanced budget. i am not your usual politician. i'm not one of the good old boys pay ed i will make this tough decisions in the united states senate. i will roll up my sleeves, work hard for you, and i will fight for you. >> now the opening statement from bob kerrey. >> thank you. i love nebraska. i always have and i always will. i was born here in lincoln. i left nebraska and went to war and came home, and i recovered from illness in the lincoln. i started a business that employed more than 700 people. i served as your governor, balancing our budget, and i left after four years and went back to business. i served as your son that -- as your senator, and again we balance our budget. i am a candidate for congress for the senate because congress needs to change, and i will fight to make that happen. i have never had and neve
. >> if those two different questions -- >> i'm going to call him a liar now. no. talking about the tax plans at the rallies. he was saying the same things on wednesday night and the other piece about how -- >> let me stop you there. i want to read to you if i can about a fact check about the tax. not cutting taxes for the wealthy. in the primary, cut taxes for everyone including the top 1%. suspect that a change? >> no, it's not. he's been saying the entire time that while he would be in favor of an across the board tax c of 25% for every taxpayer, those making over a certain amount of money he would close tax loopholes so their overall taxes that they pay and the overall tax plan would be tax neutral. i mean, it would be revenue neutral. the other piece is you mentioned this other story -- >> the story is specifics, hasn't it? >> i'll keep going back to this to seep the record straight. you all talking about this story that mitt romney had been saying and reported in other places that this is a new softer side of mitt romney. he's been telling that story for months. and so, i mean, this is
we talked about, where he can get -- capsulize an argument. >> that's how they'll fund the tax cuts, not subsidize big bird. thanks, mitt. >>> we'll look down the road to see how polls were affected by last night's debate. keep talking about it. we have to get to "cnn newsroom" which begins with carol costello now. see you back here tomorrow. >> thanks, soledad. >>> which presidential candidate is joenjoying a big bounce on t campaign trail today? >>> miguel cabrera captures the triple crown. >>> one billion users and growing, now news that facebook wants you to pay to promote your posts. >>> a strong generic version of a popular anti-depressant off the market. what consumers need to know this morning. newsroom begins now. >>> good morning. thank you so much for joining us. i'm carol costello. it is the morning after the presidential debasement many americans are remembering not just what was said last night but over the weekend. remember the prediction that raised eyebrows just a few days ago? >> this whole race will be turned upside down come thursday morning. >> well, mitt romney
of the campaign is the lie that mitt romney will raise taxes on the middle class. mitt romney has no chance of raising taxes on the middle class. his republican base would kill him. the concept of raising taxes on the middle class will never happen. >> if not, something has to give. then he can't deliver tax cuts. >> you can come up with a tax reform plan. increased revenue that takes down the rates, makes it fairer everybody. it's difficult, but you can do it. >> you can't take the rates down 20% though on top of the bush tax cuts. >> romney said, i have reform principles. they are going to help grow the economy and create jobs but the idea he can raise taxes is fanciful. he'll never do it. >> if you are going to cut taxes for the wealthy as much as mitt romney wants to there is no way or he would have put forth the pro growth plan. he's ring on magic like harry potter will be his treasury secretary. >> he's not going to be able to cut taxes for rich people. he doesn't want to. the idea of pro growth taxes -- >> didn't he say 20% across the board? >> he did, but he also said if you take up
. governor romney says he would bring relief to the middle class. >> i don't have a $5 trillion tax cut. i don't have a tax cut that you're talking about. we should provide relief to the people in the mid class. high income people are doing just fine in this income, they'll do fine whether you're president or i am. the people having a hard time right now are middle income americans. under the president's policy middle income americans have been buried, they are being crushed. jon: mr. obama with this argument. >> the fact is that if you are loring the rates you describe, governor, then it is not possible to come up with enough deductions and loopholes that only affect high income individuals to avoid either raising the deficit or burden evening the middle class, it's math, it's arithmetic. jon: today it's back to the campaign trail. mr. obama in denver, and then to wisconsin. governor romney is in virginia where the most recent "real clear politics" average shows president obama leading with 47% of the vote, governor romney with 44. virginia has 13 electoral votes up for grabs. that's wher
get more benefits from the federal government in dollar value than they pay back in taxes. so you could argue that we're already passed that tipping point. the good news is, survey after survey, poll after poll, still shows that we are a center right 70/30 country. 70% of americans want the american dream. they believe in the american idea. only 30% want the welfare state. >> which video is more sensat n sensational? more of a game-changing contest modifier. joining us from the site of tonight's debate in denver is the man who knows from game change, emmy darling, "time" magazine and msnbc senior political analyst whose publication is out with an issue today, who's telling the truth, the fact wars. mark halperin, i've been trying to find appropriate terms that would be substitutes for the phrase game change. i can't. you coined it, you own it. which of these videos, is either one of these videos a game changer in terms of tonight's debate? >> alex, any student of political tv and cable news who didn't watch hannity last night i pity the fool. it was an awesome episode of the show
calls for a $5 trillion tax cut. >> virtually everything he said about hi tax plan is inaccurate. >> for 18 months he's been running on this tax plan, and now five weeks before the election he's saying that his big bold idea is nevermind. >> let me repeat what i said. i'm not in favor of a $5 trillion tax cut. >> the president's lackluster response sent critics into a tail spin and put team obama on defense. >> i don't know what he was doing out there. he had his head down, he was enduring the debate rather than fighting it. the latest thing we got from romney because he said so, was, you know what i want to do with people when they are poor? shove them in the emergency room. where was obama tonight? >> progressives from chris matthews to bill maher to michael moore all across the progressive wing of the democratic party, there's great disappointment. >> they were jumping out of their seats watching. >> i understand. i understand there was a hunger for us to attack romney more personally than the president did last night. >> bottom line, romney scores, but was last night the firs
in new defense spending that the pentagon didn't ask for. $5 trillion tax cut, future of the wealthy. >> reporter: the claim is complicated by the way biden framed the argument. >> how they can justify raising taxes in the middle class has been buried the last four years. how in lord's name can they justify raising their taxes? >> obama officials today insisted that was not a gaffe, biden clarified. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and ryan supported. >> republicans like rubio are off to the races. >> those happen to be the words that the distinguished vice president of the united states mr. joe biden. no, don't boo. he is the best thing we've got going, guys. >> reporter: now denver has always been big for this president. in 2008 is where he launched the hope and change in front of the great columns of the democratic convention. 2009. this is where he signed the stimulus in law. tonight, he puts it all on the line trying to make his case for a second term. bret? >> bret: ed, thank you. experts will tell you the challenger often gets a slight bump in the polls
romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts to pay for the wealthy. the fellow on stage last night said he didn't know anything about that. >> around the same time governor romney was making a surprise appearance at the conservative political action conference, cpac in denver before heading to virginia for an event with congressman paul ryan later on this evening. zoo >> i know your passion for econo america and your desire to take our country back. for that to happen you guys have to cheer here and knock on doors and get people who voted for president obama to see the light sxwro and join our team. >> joining us now is steve boykin and anne cornbluth and steve deyes. the president out at that rally seemed more enthusiastic. he said that was not the real mitt romney who showed up at the debate last night. so the question to you, was it the real president obama who showed up last night? >> great question, because the president obama at that rally is not what i saw on the debate stage last night. one lingering question in my mind and i
card. two tax cuts that were not paid for. stuart: all right, i'm making the judgment that romney won. it's not just me, however, the perception that romney won this debate is widespread. even among the liberal media. headline from "the washington post" "rejuvenated romney hammers obama on his economic record" the los angeles times "a lackluster obama, a revived romney". unabashed obama supporter chris mathews was even disappointed with his guy. >> where was obama tonight? i don't know what he was doing out there. he had his head down, he was enduring the debate rather than fighting it. james carville, also noticed a new attacking style from romney. quote, mitt romney came in with a chain saw. and this tweet from bill maher. >> i can't believe i'm saying this, but obama looks like he needs-- he does need a teleprompter. well, coming up at ten o'clock. the top of the hour, eastern that would be, we will talk to brent about the media coverage of this debate. here is a question for you. by ten o'clock eastern, will the establishment media have rallied around the president, will they have
-neutral 20% tax cut across the board for every american? are we going to hear that tonight in. >> no, absolutely not. i think what you're going to hear and see is more of a tactic. sort of a communications tactic of making it sound like he's talking like a plan, like that 17,000 cap he threw out the other day and then his team walked that right back. probably -- >> karen, that's known as i've got a hole in my pocket, dear liza. >> that's right. you'll hear him talk about a number of these things as if it sounds like a plan, but without any specifics. i think what you'll see from the president is more specifics. again, the president actually has a record to talk about. i mean, put forward a health care plan. happened to be, you know, based on mitt's, but whatever. he has a jobs plan, a number of things of specifics he can point to whereas romney doesn't. i think that will be part of the contrast the president will be going for. i think romney's only defense on that, since i don't think he'll give us specifics, is rhetoric and to make it sound like he has a plan. >> do you agree with t
america a lemon. >> there will be no tax cut that adds to the deficit. i'll underline that, no tax cut that adds to the deficit. >> really? okay. what kind of mileage does it get? >> number one, pre-existing conditions are covered under my plan. >> huh? okay. do the brakes work? >> i'm sorry, jim, i'm going to stop this subsidy to pbs. i'm going to stop other things. i like pbs. i love big bird. >> let's not. let's let him respond. >> i get the last word. let me make this comment. >> nope. come on, mr. president, give us a peek under the hood. >> five week before the election he's saying that his big, bold idea is never mind. is the reason that governor romney is keeping all these plans to replace secret because they're too good? is it because that somehow middle class a families are going to benefit too much? ♪ i guess you're just what i needed ♪ >>> we begin with the president criticized as being less than effective last night by hyperventilating pundits across the board, but now getting his own chance to put a spin on the first presidential debate. fresh off last night's face-of
was going to cut taxes for wealthy people? >> he is the etch-a-sketch guy who has transformed himself and quite frankly, we always have to wonder which mitt romney is going to show up. if you just lay out lie after lie after lie about your own plan, as well as what the president has been talking about, of course you can look good. megyn: joining me now is chris stirewalt, host of "power play." i wanted to get back to january of 2009 when president obama in a common about immigration. joe wilson, shouted out, you lie on the floor of the house. watch this. >> there there are those that claim that our reform efforts would ensure illegal immigrants. this, too, is very false. the reform -- the reforms i am proposing would not apply to those who are here legally. megyn: the president and his supporters back then were outraged that joe wilson chose to resort to name-calling and calling him a liar. because they disagreed with what he was saying about his policies. the leader came out and said we have to get to the point where we can have a conversation about big and important issues that matt
and feeding off taxpayer money and not doing their job. .. and to close at, what is taking a 15% tax increase or we would have to reduce our personnel by 10%. that is 40 out of 400 employees would have to let go. so for the last 10 months, this is in my largest haul. i've the market every day in the budget turned to come up with creative ways to increase revenue, creative ways to reduce costs. we have a laundry list of initiatives. and yesterday, i propose my budget proposal for the next year that will close the $3 million deficit with only three layoffs in the 2.7% tax increase. a full percentage point below the average of the last four years. back on about 12 likes on facebook. i got some presidential, 500 likes on facebook. this'll be a real head, sherry. >> sometimes a refresh. there must not be reading it. >> but it is as a tool, the important conversations, those have to have when you have so much attention. they can give you their attention. you can give them yours. there is no push but my to replicate that. but as a forum, to share the implications and sometimes to allow a dialect to
and mr. ryan have given no details but have given a promise that they're going to reduce taxes by 20%, how does mitt romney deal with that tomorrow? what does he actually say that he has previously refused to say on explaining that? >> well, i think it's fascinating that they're treating mitt romney like he's the president and a lot in the media treat president obama like he's the challenger. what president george w. bush did when he was governor of texas is said i want to reduce taxes across the board and i want to make sure we have a balanced budget. he wasn't very specific during the campaign, and when he became president, he released a series of principles that went to capitol hill that said these are the measures that meet my -- >> here is the problem with that though, ron. people who have assessed his mathematics have deemed them to be completely impossible. michael, this is just in from mitt romney on how he'll pay for his massive 20% across the board tax cut. take a listen. >> everybody is going to get up to a $17,000 deduction and you can use your charitable deduction or you
